Tire Mounting Bracket

We have managed to successfully accumulate 3 of the 4 pieces in a '49 3100 under-frame spare tire mount. We all know how difficult these are to find because they are a miserable design and most got thrown into the scrap pile after one use.

The part we are missing the bracket that mounts the wheel with 2 bolts. It is the smallest part of the 3 in the picture. Everyone we talk to indicates this is the most difficult of the 4 pieces to find.

We think that the best approach now is to fabricate one. That means we need to borrow one as pattern or get pictures with dimensions.

Are there any suggestions for who we could contact to get these details? Obviously we would be willing to travel a reasonable distance or pay shipping both ways to borrow a part. We are located where I-80 crosses the Mississippi River.

Thanks for the consideration.

Hi Rusty,

I have this unit installed on my '47. You are correct, these are extremely difficult to find........

I'll be happy to take some pictures and measurements, if that will help you out. You are more than welcome to take a 'road trip' to Iowa City, if you prefer that option.

Let me know how you want to proceed.

Best regards,


Andy

I gotta look under my truck. I don't remember that particular part.

I might have that part. I was trying to obtain parts for my '37; very different than this set up and it came with some of the parts I needed. It may be a week or two before I am back up to my place where the part is. If it is the correct one you can have it for the shipping.

Hello to all and many thanks for the great responses.

Andy: We really appreciate your offer. It is definitely worth a short road trip to meet you and see your truck. I am often in the Iowa City/Cedar Rapids area for various reasons.

I will contact you at the end of the month to arrange a visit.

Kent: If you have that part we are definitely interested!

Rusty,
I will send you a private message after I take a look at what I have. By the way, this must be an eastern Iowa thread. I am originally from Iowa City.

Rusty,
Did you read my PM.

As info the tire carrier was the same 1940-1950. The pre 1940 was a different style as was the 1951 onward.

Is a restoration ever finished?

Hi Harold,

That is the part we are missing. The long fixed slide channel was never removed from the truck.

I responded to your PM

Thank you!
